New realeases [Feb 6th, 2010]
Joshua Ferris, the author of the cult hit Then We Came to the End has a new novel The Unnamed. Tao Lin’s most recent title, a novella from Melville House, Shoplifting from American Apparel, is back in stock. A new book Better from John O’Brien, the author of Leaving Las Vegas is in stock. “John O’Brien was a stunningly talented writer who created poetry from the most squalid materials” – Jay McInerney. New Directions has brought out a second book of Horacio Castellanos Moya’s fiction, The She-Devil in the Mirror. Trout Fishing in America by Richard Brautigan has finally been reprinted, in an attractive new edition. Ryan Adam’s poetry collection Infinity Blues is here from Akashic.
Among recent arrivals in non fiction are Music: I-LXXIV, a collection of highly readable and entertaining short pieces from award winning poet August Kleinzahler, covering everyone from Glenn Gould to Ivor Culter without descending into pure name dropping. We are also prominently displaying Graham Gibson’s follow up to Bedside Book of Birds, The Bedside Book of Beasts. Back in stock after rapidly selling out is The One Dimensional Woman, by Nina Power, a short and timely screed against the commercial subversion of feminism published by Zero Books. New World Coming, the Sixties and the Shaping of Global Consciousness, edited by Karen Dubinsky et al is a bulky collection of no-nonsense essays with illustrations and a set of colour plates, including Sarnia in the Sixties, or the peculiarities of the Canadians.
